Two Psychos Are Better Than One

The Arts

At the Leicester Square Theatre this October, Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 PSYCHO will be shown simultaneously with Van Sant’s 1998 remake. This fascinating experiment apparently ‘provides a unique insight into the nature of directorial technique and the role of actors’ interpretation, while asking the question: can a story be told exactly the same way twice?’

Or it might just make Van Sant’s version look like pants. You decide. Nice trailer though.
